HGTV Dream Home 2013 in Kiawah Island, S.C.

A barrier island off the coast of historic Charleston, S.C., Kiawah is one of the nation's top golf destinations. Natural conservation is a key part of life here; homes are surrounded by lush native vegetation and marshes while beach access is a short walk or bike ride away. Designed in the classic Low Country style, our HGTV Dream Home was sturdily constructed to withstand the coastal elements while seamlessly fitting into its natural surroundings.
